What we did
Green-tech Specifier has worked with both Re-form and Atlas Green for many years. To ensure that the trees and shrubs thrive, it is crucial to give them good quality soil to grow in. Atlas Green chose Green-tech’s British Standard Green-tree topsoil, and around 900 tonnes was supplied to site in staged deliveries, along with top quality bark mulch to finish the planting beds.
Irrigation was supplied in the form of Green-tech’s Mona tanks, an underground reservoir system that requires filling on average every 5-6 weeks depending on conditions. More than 60 anchor systems were supplied to ensure the ongoing stability of the trees until they become fully established.
Finally, 380 square meters of GT RootBarrier and geo-textiles were used with ArborTex used to line the base of the rain garden beds.
